    I do not quite understand the party of Lincoln acting like there are no conservative black republicans . I am a black republican. The party should be ashamed of these numbers. They mouth the words but do not follow up with action, just empty rhetoric. The party cannot consist of all evangelicals who are white and male. This a country full of different cultures and limitless opportunities.My question to John and Sarah what is it going to take for the republican party to do the right thing. JC Watts former african-american congressman from Oklahoma said “People do not care how much you know until they know how much you care”
